Those Stars Are Done

Finally getting to a major completion point in the quilt-making process is a really big deal for me. I think about having to make 30 stars - that's 120 flying geese units or 240 squares that need to be marked diagonally. The next quilt I make that requires flying geese will be made with the no-waste method. I've done it before and it works.  Anyway, I'm getting off on a tangent. The star of today's show (pun intended) is my stack of finished stars.

Ta-dahh! Finished the last of them on Tuesday while Sharon was here sewing with me. What a sense of accomplishment. I have a few shots of them laid out on the bed. It looks pretty cool seeing them all touching like this, but in the actual quilt there will be a setting block between each star.

That bottom picture shows all 33 blocks laid out on the guest bed. Yes, I said 33. Somehow I miscalculated how many I'd made and ended up making 3 more than I need. (I believe I've referenced here in previous posts that math is not my strongest suit.)

I am already at work on setting the quilt top together. I sewed yesterday (Wednesday) at Terry's and got about a third of the top constructed. Pictures to come, of course! Stay tuned!

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. Looking lovely! I'll be anxious to see the quilt top with the setting blocks. Have fun putting it together!

  2. It's looking great already. I can't believe how quickly you've made all those blocks.
